When you are involved in the construction industry, you know that summer is always a busy time. Already, there are signs that this year will be no exception. Do you have all your construction signs for Fort Worth locations lined up?
Who Needs Construction Signs?
If you are a skilled contractor, you cannot afford to drive a plain white work truck or van to the job. For the general contractor who manages a construction site, there are ample safety and wayfinding markers that you simply cannot afford to omit from the location.
Architect signage for Fort Worth projects communicates your vision for the completed complex or building while also branding and marketing your company’s name. In short, anyone who is involved in the construction trade – no matter how remotely – cannot afford to let the summer business boom start without being well equipped.
What Are Your Signage Options?
- Car magnets. One of the easiest to use yet also highly effective signs for skilled contractors, car magnets attach to the sides of your work truck or van to identify your trade and company. Display your company’s name and logo to increase name recognition.
- Parking signs. The general contractor in charge of construction site management must think beyond the roped off work area and also handle the traffic problems that can ensue when laborers, contractors, architects and heavy equipment all come to the site at the same time. Curtail parking by the general public to free up spaces for workers. Define access points where only authorized personnel may enter or exit the site by vehicle.
- Post and panel signs. For the architect who sees beyond the hole in the ground to visualize an attractive shopping center, public access building or condominium community, it is a great marketing idea to display artists’ renderings of the proposed finished project. By the way, this also helps the future leasing agent generate interest in the project by retail and residential clients. The latter ensures continued financing of the project.
- Safety signs. This is another sticky situation for the site manager. Think through the hazardous areas and post OSHA-required as well as ADA-compliant signs. Identify emergency eye-washing stations, hard hat areas and the locations for first aid kits.
- Wayfinding signage. Once the project gets close to completion, sales and leasing agents may set up an office and open for business. With models of finished storefronts or apartment units completed, these agents show the models and sell or lease similar properties on different floors. Ensuring that the interested buyer or renter can find the agent is of vital importance. Yet since there is still ongoing construction, it is important to map out a way that is not only clearly marked but also far away from potential hazards.
